Veröffentlicht am

The University of Queensland hosted the 10th Annual Latin American Colloquium on Wednesday 5, October 2016.

With an overarching theme of 'A decade of collaboration and innovation: Celebrating Australian and Latin American partnerships', the event sought to encourage broader discussion on the role and impact of Australian and Latin American relations and advances over the last ten years.

Proudly supported by Latin American diplomatic representatives, the Colloquium reflected on how the dialogue between Australia and Latin America has shifted and looked to the future of the relationship through a high-level keynote, panel discussions and Q&A. Discussions focused on the sub-themes of education, industry and government, considering Latin American and Australian experiences of innovation in each of these sectors and how business, cultural and educational exchange has enhanced outcomes.

  9. 9. Decade of Australia-Latin America links (continued) • Significant expansion in research & educational collaboration over decade • 355 agreements (Australian universities – Latin counterparts) • UQ Australian leader – first Australian Uni to have an office/presence in Latin America • UQ’s Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI), JKTech & Universidad de Concepcion in Chile established International Centre of Excellence in sustainable mining (CORFU funded) • UQ/SMI persistence/commitment – competition with CSIRO for first such Centre • SMI great partner in many projects across Latin America – especially in Peru • Growth in Investment by Australian companies or global companies in resources (e.g. BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Orica) as well as jump in junior miners operating in region and good growth in mining services companies with operations in region • Doubling in Australian companies with a presence or operations in Peru between 2010 & 2016 – 88 companies now represented

Slide 1/5
  36. 36. 43 Why did we come to Australia? We are passionate about what we do Slide 2/5 We are entrepreneurs We wanted to be global We had some clients with common presence in both Chile and Australia We saw an opportunity for Vantaz and “Vantazticos”
  37. 37. How did we do it? Vantaz first started business in Australia in 2007 with a small project for a tier 1 miner. Over the last 9 years, we have evolved in many ways. Slide 3/5 1. Challenges • Cultural and language barriers • Lack of local experience in Australia • Lack of local market knowledge and relationships 2. Local collaboration was key first step • Establishment of an alliance with an Australian based complementary company in the mining sector within the consulting domain 3. The alliance strengthened, bringing tangible co-benefits • Shared offices and other practical logistics • Exchanging dialogues on cultural differences and Business etiquete • Introduction to potential local clients based on past relationships
  38. 38. How did we reinforce collaboration? 1. Relocated with my family 2 years ago • Deeper involvement in the business • Easier to hunt new sector collaborators / innovators • Potential to apply Australian model to other mining countries Slide 4/5 2. Accomplishments • JV in Chile with Bluefield, a Brisbane based company within the mining maintenance domain • Latam representation for Romteck, a Perth based IoT product Company • Partnership with Schneider Electric in Australia and Latam, to pursue customers with joint offerings 3. Community participation • Facilitated 18 Chilean entrepreneurs from Chile to explore Australian METS market • Shared our experiences with the ALAYP network
  39. 39. Key to Collaboration is Slide 5/5 Understanding that it is 10 times more important to find the RIGHT partner than to find the best idea or the best market.
  40. 40. Daniel Gasparri Rey Chargé d'Affaires a.i Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Australia Venezuela: National Council for Productive Economy
  41. 41. Context • President Nicolás Maduro approved several reforms aimed at incentivizing exports, including the temporary suspension of export licensing requirements. • These economic measures include the assignation of the remain resources from the 2015, to health, education, food, and housing; designing and implementing measures to prevent tax evasion; and giving the executive the authorization to address the causes of the current situation. In January 2016, the Venezuelan Executive implemented economic measures to fully support the national industry.
